Uncle Emil’s Czech-Style Sauerkraut

60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)

6 servings
Growing up we ate this delicious sauerkraut w/roast pork & roast duck dinners, often w/dumplings as a 2nd side dish. Every family's treasured recipe has a story. My great-uncle Emil (Placek) was Czech by heritage, but American born. 1 dy he walked into a diner in Nebr & was face-to-face w/my Irish great-aunt Loretta (Sullivan). She was cookin up a storm & he was hungry & smitten, so it was a fated marriage of “sweet & sauer”. Lots of Irish colleens followed my Aunt Loretta & made great kraut using applesauce & Step #5 below. We all overuse the word “best” if talking about things we love, so I won't do that. This is the BEST! (Noted time is 30 min total for all prep & cooking)
